Took the catamaran ride out to whale watch. It was the best trip like that I've ever been on. The captain and helper knew a lot about the whales, how to read the water and all the sea life we saw. They also knew when to be quiet and let the allure of the whales and ocean enchant their passengers.... More

Went whale watching a year ago, both times off Cape Cod, and this was a very different experience. First thing to say is that this boat is very small. It only holds about twenty two passengers and two crew which can be something of a mixed blessing as you will be unable to avoid any irritating co-passengers i.e. long lens... More

We did the most fantastic whale tour with these guys on July 4th. The crew were very friendly, the boat great and our on board ecologist very knowledgeable. Best of all we saw loads of whales, as in loads. We were close up (engine off drifting) and had breaching tail splashes, feeding, the works. We saw about 15 individual whales... More

We took the ride on their glass bottom boat. The boat has two levels, and on the bottom one, the sides are glass windows into the water. At first we couldn't see too much, because the water there in the bay is somewhat cloudy. However, when we got out far enough, the captain handed out some food for the fish,... More

We went whale watching on 6-18-14. I have to say this trip greatly exceeded our expectations. We were hoping to see some spouts and maybe a whale tale or two. We ended up seeing 30+ whales! At one point, our boat was surrounded by 10 whales! We had the amazing opportunity to see 2 whales breach. In addition to the... More

We started out a bit doubtful we would see any whales but wnded up seeing around 8 Humpback whales, they were everywhere! We even saw some breach in the distance which was a spectacular sight. Kev was a great Captain and brillianr at finding the whales!also saw seals and sea otters. Great trip!

My Wife and I spent and enjoyable 3 hours aboard the Dos Osos, although this time we didn't see any Whales, the trip was very good. The weather was very kind and the sea was like a mill pond. Captain Kevin tried his hardest to find the whales but we did see various other interesting pieces of wildlife!

This trip was the best whale watching trip that we have ever been on! We are so grateful to River and Kevin for the way they hosted, took care of us and brought forth their wisdom & knowledge of whales & other wildlife. We had opportunity to not only see whales but we spend over 1 1/2 hrs viewing three... More

The weather was great & we saw several "spouts", a small whale & two whale tails. However - captain was pretty disinterested & took several personal cell phone calls (loudly) during the trip. Our guide was knowledgable but spoke so softly that it was very difficult to understand her at all. Overall it was OK - maybe there is another... More

Catamaran rode out in choppy seas -- whitecaps all around. Everyone got sick; most wanted to turn back. Captain determined to stay out until he'd managed a sighting. On choppy waters for three hours. Wasn't fun.
